I stayed here in late July with my husband and 10 year old son for 5 nights. I stay in Residence Inns often for work and this hotel is run very well. Breakfast is the standard fare with a good bit of variety for families, including healthy options and indulgent ones. The woman in charge is very friendly and the 3rd floor views are a great people watching spot to start your day.
We had a studio on the 24th floor with a view of the west. Western views are still pretty interesting because of several rooftop pools, decks, and tennis courts from adjacent condo buildings.
The area is very accessible to bus and train stops. The area is safe and populated in the evenings. Food is expensive in the immediate area -- $12-$17 sandwiches abound. Hub 51 is the restaurant attached to the hotel and they provide room service to the hotel. We went there in person to eat lunch when we first got there. Service and food were good, but the menu is limited and prices are high. The hotel will deliver groceries for free - I recommend doing this if you are on a family vacation. It was simple and we saved a lot of money ($12 burgers add up!) We tried ordering pizza the first night, but it was about an hour late. I don't think they are equipped to deliver to hotels.
